Skincare Products

Our Let It Bee skincare products are naturally nourishing, harnessing the antiseptic and moisturising qualities of honey and beeswax.

100% natural, they are ideal for those with sensitive skin.

All our soaps, hand balms and lip balms are handmade in small batches, using honey and beeswax from our own bees in south Birmingham.

Bee-utiful Beeswax

Beeswax is a natural wax produced by worker bees in the hives of honeybees.

It has a pleasant honey aroma but no taste and is used in the food industry, as a film to wrap cheese for maturing or as a food additive to give shine to the products, making it perfect for our food wraps and snack bags.

Beeswax also makes great candles, which burn brightly and give off a delightful scent without the need for any added fragrance or toxins.

What do honey bees do in the winter?

I'm often asked what happens to bee colonies in the winter. Well for many bees and wasps only the queens live through the winter. However, honey bees are different as they remain active all year around.  At this time of year the drones (male bees) get kicked out...
